Christian Leaders Comment on
US Supreme Court's Two-Faced
Ten Commandments Decisions

The U.S. Supreme Court seemed to be talking out of both sides of its mouth with the recent decision on the display of the Ten Commandments. When the Ten Commandments is displayed in Texas, it's constitutional. When the Ten Commandments is displayed in Kentucky, it violated the constitution's Establishments Clause.

Dr. James Dobson of
Focus on the Family - the decision "tore a hole through the First Amendment."

Dr. D. James Kennedy of
Coral Ridge Ministries - the US Supreme Court has "placed itself above the people, above the Constitution, and above God."

Gary Bauer of the
Campaign for Working Families - the decision "a display of the Ten Commandments may be constitutional so long as it is devoid of any religious significance."

Traditional Values Coalition - US Supreme Court suffers from "church/separation anxiety."

Roy Moore, the former Alabama chief justice, - the US Supreme Court is "interfering with the First Amendment."

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) - "this is a dichotomy of rulings."

Liberty Legal Institute - "The idea that the founders would think that there's any problem with displaying the Ten Commandments is a joke."

Richard Thompson of the
Thomas More Law Center - "The court announced no rule of law."

Brad Dacus with the
Pacific Justice Institute - "the Ten Commandments can be displayed in virtually any government building, so long as the display has a secular purpose."

Bernie Reece with the
National Clergy Council - "This is a frightening thing to look around and see us debating the very law that preserved this nation for over 200 years -- and [to] watch the moral decay that's taking place."
